It is National Family Caregivers Month and throughout the month, we will be sharing about rebuilding after stroke from the #caregiver / #carepartner perspective. The role of the caregiver can take many forms. What does caregiving look like for you? #NFCMonth

On average, a stroke happens every 40 seconds in the US. Every second counts when it comes to identifying and treating a stroke, so it's important to B.E. F.A.S.T. #WorldStrokeDay
